Winter Solstice 2013

Winter Solstice is a big event for many cultures.   In ancient China, this day means that  farmers could lay down their tools and return home to their families. A feast would be prepared to mark the occasion.  A special dessert made of a sweet soup with Glutinous Balls is prepared and everyone is expected to have a bowl of this soup; known as Tang Yuan. This is also the day that they add a year to your age.

Today, I found an interesting article about Winter Solstice 2013, which is tomorrow (22nd December).
Let’s see what they say :
